About

Hi everybody. My name is Steve, and I’m an adult male with a shameful secret.

Steven Finkelstein, the "Vegetables Suck" guyI am, and always have been, an extremely picky eater.

When I was a kid, I pretty much only ate hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza, and french fries. Vegetables were anathema to me, and there were a number of other things that I disliked also. Because I didn’t exercise much and I didn’t eat a balanced diet, I was overweight, and pretty unhappy about it.

But now that I’m all grown up (in body, if not so much in mind), I have increased the number of things that I eat, branching out into a number of different ethnic cuisines, including Thai, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, and even Ethiopian.

The reason I started this website is because I wanted to help others who are picky eaters like myself. I’m in my thirties now, and I’m at the ideal weight for someone of my height. Incorporating exercise into what is still a relatively restricted diet, I’ve been able to avoid the foods that I dislike, like virtually all vegetables, eggs, seafood, and a number of other things, but I’m still in good shape, active, and healthy. I’d like all my visitors to this site to be able to say the same, and I’d like this to be a forum where we can talk about the best ways to cook, and eat, so that we can enjoy the things we like, distance ourselves from the things that we don’t, and still lead healthy, active lives.

What I’ve got planned in the weeks to come is to share my diet and exercise tips, as well as recipes that I’ve tailored to my exact specifications, so that I can enjoy them without suddenly getting a mouthful of something that grosses me out.

We all have different tastes, and if you’re a person who can order anything at a restaurant and be assured that you’ll enjoy it, then more power to you. But for those of us who can’t stomach broccoli, this website may be for you. I’m all about keeping the tone here light and easy…I don’t take myself too seriously at all, and you shouldn’t either. Life is too short for that, and life is too short to eat string beans either.

Now forward, to great taste, good health, and the banishment of all things yucky!
